Detection of extraterrestrials
The latest cosmic object to be spotted on Tuesday was A extraterrestrialA planet orbiting a star other than our Sun is one of James Webb’s major researches.

James Webb was launched by rocket from French Guiana on Christmas Day about six months ago Ariadne 5. As a result of enormous international cooperation, and in the program since the 1990s, it has been positioned 1.5 million kilometers from Earth.
The release of these first images marked the beginning of an enormous scientific adventure that would stretch over many years and transform our understanding of the universe.
Researchers from around the world have reserved observation time with James Webb, whose plan for its first year of operation has already been carefully determined by a panel of experts and made public.
The telescope has enough fuel to run for 20 years. Around 20,000 people worldwide worked on the project, making it a major international collaboration.
